FROM THE EIGHTIES TO THE NOUGHTIES
Our history gets very hazy from the 1980s to 2000, but we currently have one or two points in the timeline which shed some light on what happened during this period!
One of our former members, John McCracken, remembers his days in the club back in the 80s:
"Yes I was a member at that time, and rowed bow in the crew that won the novice fours at Edinburgh University’s Regatta in 1984, the first competitive outing for the re-formed club. My ability to switch easily between rowing on different sides of the boat was an asset when the club was so small and my good sense of balance offset the relative lack of power that I could muster!"
